Michael Hill has worked within the Superbike World Championship paddock for more than 15 years and is recognised by many as the face of the Paddock Show.

With experience presenting and reporting on both two and four wheeled motorsports, 2013 saw Michael expand his already impressive services portfolio.

He also had the honour of hosting the official end of season gala award ceremony in Jerez, something he is particularly proud of.

Michael continued this role in 2015, but with expanded responsibilities that saw him presenting a number of trackside video features and rider interviews as well as hosting the official pre-event Press Conferences, Paddock Shows throughout the weekend, and the end of season gala award ceremony for a second time. He also returned to commentating ‘live’ on the European Junior Cup races, broadcast around the globe.

2016 saw Michael develop his skills further becoming the co-ordinator and host of all fan activity within the Paddock Show of the Superbike World Championship whilst continuing to provide media and management services to riders within the MotoGP, WorldSBK, CEV and BSB paddocks.

He was also invited to host the annual MotoFest at The Bend Motorsport Park in Australia, where in addition to hosting the main fan stage, he also commentated trackside on both the ASBK and ARRC Championship races.
